The OECD short-term economic (STES) indicators provide a basis for macroeconomic analysis, short to medium-term forecasting and economic modeling for a number of internal OECD users and the general public.
The OECD Short-term Economic Statistics collection includes monthly and quarterly statistics for all OECD members and Key Partners on:
Content may be evolving slowly and reflected in annual updates of the STES SDMX package. The OECD will make an effort to reengineer ad-hoc legacy STES data collections into an SDMX-based collection in collaboration with national statistical offices and central banks, and whenever possible rely on overlapping international data collections related to short-term economic statistics.
STES version 3.2 is now available. This new version includes a new (primarily dissemination oriented) domain CLI, and new CL_SUBJECT and CL_UNIT codes to complement it. In addition, there are new CL_SUBJECT codes for the collection of contributions to annual inflation.
In addition to the STES 3.0 / 3.1 packages, the STES 3.2.xml structure file, in SDMX 2.1, contains explicitly defined dataflow artefacts and cube region constraints for the flows to help validation and flow management.
Previous versions of STES can be found on the Content page.
